Getting the right balance with student life Getting the right balance with student life

At UEA, we believe the undergraduate student experience is everything and that's why our students continually rank us among the top universities in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey.

No matter what university means to you, we will help you develop and grow independently in order to ensure you find the right balance for a successful student experience. We will support you at every step of the way and if you ever need to talk, our Student Support Service is always available to listen.

Our campus has all you need to make the most of your student experience. Not only will you have access to excellent teaching facilities and inspiring work spaces, but there's also everything you need to relax, no matter your style. Work up a sweat at our amazing Sportspark, explore your creative side at the renowned Sainsbury Centre, or catch your favourite bands at the LCR... there's something for everyone at UEA.

Take in the sights of the city, including not one, but two cathedrals and a medieval castle, or sample the nightlife at one or many of the numerous bars and clubs. And if you need a break don't forget the whole of East Anglia is at your feet, from pristine beaches to the Norfolk broads.
